Answer

Thanks so much for your question. To be perfectly honest, I have not tried these products for myself, so it is quite hard to give you a real answer. I’ve also had a look at the make-up of the products and although there is not a lot of detailed information on what exactly is in them, the few ingredient listings that I have been able to find, do list really great ingredients. The questions is, HOW MUCH, (what concentration) of those ingredients are actually in the jars? So as I said, some of the ingredients in the products are really great ingredients, and there is a great amount of research on botanicals, peptides and collagen induction etc, but I have not tried this for myself so I have no idea how the product feels or how active they are. There is certainly a lot of writing, as you say, that really make a big hype and many people swear by them. At the end of the day, you have to use what works for you.

Hi Dr Allem, I have very sensitive lips. When I wear lipstick my lips become extremely dry and they peel the next day. Can you recommend a product to help and maybe even a lipstick brand that I could wear? Thanks so much!

Question from Cindi

Question

Hi, I recently developed a rash on the side of my underarm (just outside of the underarm area). I thought it was just heat or friction, but it has been a week and it has not gone away or shown any change. It doesn’t hurt, but its sensitive, red ans makes me feel self conscious in strappy shirts. Is there something else that could’ve caused this and what is the best way to treat it?

Question

Hello Dr M.

I have major sensitive skin with terrible discoloration, and now I have developed a massive rash that and with all the products that I have tried both natural and chemical based, my face just burns and since it is sensitive to every thing I have tried, it has now gotten flaky and I also have hyper-pigmentation. I was told to get persivate cream and cetaphil clanser and lotion, but my skin burns and dries after moisturizing. what should I do next?
